Well, the announcement was delayed a few days, but Dan Patrick has finally announced he is leaving ESPN, ending an era over there.
Despite those crazy rumors about The Price is Right, it sure appears Patrick's next move will be a radio one, likely with a syndicated show. Or maybe he'll replace Katie Couric at the CBS Evening News! (Just kidding.)
Actually, I'm surprised with some of the reaction to this announcement--- a lot of people are glad he's leaving, saying he has a big ego and so on. It's about time he left ESPN, he was there 18 years. Actually, it's a wonder why anyone works for ESPN in that nondescript, middle-of-nowhere Bristol, Connecticut. Everyone knows the place is boring and has no girls--- that's why Keith Olbermann quit in the first place. The only good thing about it is it's the home of ESPN and you can watch sports all the time if you work there.
Anyway, bye bye Dan Patrick.
